MADISON-BOUCKVILLE ANTIQUES COMMUNITY STILL THRIVING
Following the announcement of a closing of a single summer show along the Madison-Bouckville antiques and collectibles haven in Central New York, rumors began circulating that the famed shopping destination might be no more.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The June Show there recently brought out record crowds, and the annual Madison-Bouckville Antique Week will return with renewed force Aug. 12-18.
“Our show is blossoming and this year will be bigger than ever,” promised Madison-Bouckville Promotions president John Mancino.
Mancino said he had learned of the other show’s closing via Facebook, and in quick order he started to receive calls from people fearing the other shops and fields in the antiques and collectibles community along and around Route 20 would follow. The closed show was only a part of the area’s attraction, and full-time dealers and their special guest vendors will remain there for many years to come, he said.
He actually had good news for any vendor who has been turned away by the closing of that show – a new spot in one of the other showfields is only a phone call away. A full list of all of the fields is available here on the Madison-Bouckville Promotions website.
“While we’re sad to see it go, we still have 14 showfields left with 2,500 spaces to accommodate everyone who wants to come out,” Mancino said.
